The DXR series comprises four full-range models – the DXR8, DXR10, DXR12 and DXR15 – and each enclosure houses a 1,100-Watt Class D amplifier, delivering an SPL of up to 133dB.
Minimal distortion transducers, which provide a flat frequency response and high output, have been customised to match the amplifier's properties and are designed to produce deep bass, clear mid-range and accurate high frequencies. Furthermore, an all-new universal switched mode power supply ensures the DXR series is suitable for worldwide use.
Yamaha's FIR-X tuning is also employed for clear and consistent sound throughout all output levels. Two settings are provided – FOH/MAIN or MONITOR – optimising the loudspeaker for front of house or monitoring applications.
In the development of this new range, Yamaha collaborated with loudspeaker specialist NEXO.
“Working with NEXO was an obvious step in taking the DXR range to the highest level of performance. Liaising closely with their engineers at their state-of-the-art facility greatly contributed to the astonishing SPL and unmatched reliability of these new loudspeakers,” said Toshiaki Kamiya, engineering manager, Speakers & Amplifiers Group, Yamaha Pro Audio Division.
